know the president of the united states talked to the president of egypt and demanded that kind of treatment from what was a long-time u.s. ally. now it seems to be somewhere in the middle d this is clearly un-american crowd, anti-american crowd, chanting with our blood, our soul, we avenge our prophet. bill? bill: who are the people in the streets? the usual suspects in cairo but what do we know about who the rioters are? >> reporter: you have pretty two defending groups. you have people in the street, who are young angry youths trying to break down the police barricades there. chanting slogans death to america. that kind of thing. if you zoom out a little bit and go 200 yards to your left, we will pan over and go to tahrir square. that is where the muslim brotherhood is holding a huge protest. that's where they tore up a u.s. flag earlier today during friday prayers. and paraded around with a islamist flag. the same islamist flag they put up on tuesday on 9/11. they're also carrying a usama bin laden poster about four feet tall around. that goes with graffiti reportedly spraye
, calling ambassador chris stevens an exemplary representative for the united states and gave his life for our country. welcome to "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. martha: good morning. bill. i'm martha macallum. a killing after u.s. ambassador, a violent event we have not seen in decades. how will the president react to this and also to the violence breaking out in egypt. bill: that is another attack on the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt. this is video from there. [shouting] martha: protesters scaling the walls in cairo, tearing down the american flag, replacing it with a black islamic banner, similar to the one used by al qaeda. bill: want to start now. team fox coverage. greg palkot live in london. ed henry live at the white house. reaction from both. want to start with greg overseas. what is the latest there, greg? >> reporter: bill, martha, minute by minute we're piecing more details of the incident in libya. we know about the tragic deaths there, u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens was killed. second individual identified, his name was sean smith. very important informati
of innocence, a loss of beliefing that it cobe anything but an attack on the united states and a realization as a nation we would never really be the same again after this moment. and also, that, we would most likely soon be at war in one way or another. and all of that in these moments, 11 years ago began to sink in. you look at that beautiful reflecting pool that marks that spot at ground zero. all of it opened last year. bill and i were down there and watched as those ceremonies took place. it is a striking, striking memorial. i have to say this morning on my way into the city it was dark and the red, white and blue on the tower of world trade center 1 was overwhelming to me. it was so moving. and it is not yet finished which some people are not too happy about but, boy, it is quite a sight on the skyline of new york city now. bill: if you have been to the memorial site or maybe have plans to come in the coming year or years to come, those pools sit within the footprints where the twin towers once stood, north and south tower. those reflecting pools that come in and out of your camera vie
and iran is able to defend itself. look for delegations like the united states to walk out once again as soon as he starts criticizing israel. bill: there were stunning comments from pakistan's president last night. what was spoken there, jonathan? >> reporter: this is pretty extraordinary, bill. it reported on fox report but appeared to slip under the radar for a lot of media outlets because it was one of the final speeches of the day. just hours after president obama at the same podium called for tolerance and called for leaders of the muslim world to outright condemn the violence against u.s. interests that we've seen over the past couple of weeks, the pakistani president walked up to that podium, failed utterly to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the pea
mahmoud ahmadinejad stood in the same spot. he lashed out against israel and the united states. >> translator: the current abysmal situation of the world and history due mainly to the wrong management of the world and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil. bill: david lee miller now is live at the u.n. and what can we expect to hear from the israeli prime minister after he left israel late yesterday? david lee, good morning there. >> reporter: good morning, bill. it is expect the by many that israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will essentially put forth the argument where the red line should be for military action against iran if in the eyes of israel and its allies that country continues to try to enrich enough uranium sufficient to make a nuclear bomb. netanyahu reacted earlier to the speech yesterday by mahmoud ahmadinejad, the iranian president, who spoke on the holiest day of the jewish year, yom kippur. the israeli prime minister said and i quote him, on this day we pray to be inscribed in the book life a platform was given
this is symbolic. the egyptian arrest warrants don't have any meaning in the united states. it stems from last tuesday here near the u.s. embassy in cairo where these protests all began. when they marched down towards the embassy. they ripped down the american flag to protest the movie. now the egyptian court wants to arrest seven coptic christians and one u.s. pastor allegedly behind this film. that is interesting i sat down with one of the organizers of one. protests a couple days ago, a man with very strong ties to al qaeda. he told me wants people tried by sharia law. under sharia law you are convicted of the insulting the prophet muhammad and don't repent you are executed. this move i about the egyptian courts shows how much egypt changed in 18 months. we went to a place a moderate islamic state to one really kowtowing to the demands of hard-line islamists and here demanding people's arrests, bill. bill: we watched it all flare up on friday last week. what is your sense of the violence, the potential of violence throughout the region? will it get worse? will it escalate or not, leland? >>
, and, more outreach and bringing his message to the people of the united states. what did you think about it? about that story? i found it very interesting. >> well, i thought it was interesting, and i think some of it, certainly, is true. he'd be silly not to be worried, according to the polls, it is all within the margin of error, this election with just over nine weeks left is absolutely up for grabs. he'd be naive and he's far from that, not to be worried but i also think there is a certain amount of spin in that article and obviously it helps, with their voters. if they say, the big guy is worried and the big guy wants to campaign harder and wants even longer days, then that is saying to his supporters, you have to get out there and work even harder for this guy, because this is a real fight and as far as the argument about, well, he'll be more of a compromiser in a second term, again, he's got to say things will be better than they were, obviously, there has been total gridlock for the last two years and i don't see any signs of it and i suppose if there were a sweeping electi
in the barrel. this is though arbitrary. think about this. the president of the united states appears on david letterman and does not know the size of the national debt, which under his watch --. >> at least did not admit it. >> at least didn't admit. he could have said. just over $16. 20 billion, 27 billion, depending on the time of the day he could have admit the. sort of like one of those moments you say, wait a minute. then he dismissed it as not being a problem in the short run. i mean the debt has grown from 10 trillion $800 billion to 16 trillion on his watch. it has gone from 40% of the gdp to 70% of the gdp. we're starting to look like grease and the president says i don't even know what the number is. nobody gives him his turn in the barrel. bill: you and him and other deactors would say it has gone up $6 trillion under your watch. >> 5 trillion to be fair. bill: $16 now and -- >> 10.8. i want to be fair to him. bill: here we have the polling numbers seem to suggest that the president's gaining sfwround on mitt romney. you're reaching back into 1980 to tell us things were much differ
is from the israeliss, we are willing to delay a military strike, which the united states has said they want the israelis to do, if america makes some kind of public promise about an attack. so far the words from secretary clinton though don't seem to show the united states is willing to do that, martha. martha: so, there has been a lot of discussion about perhaps an imminent attack coming from israel to takeout some of those facilities. where does all that stand now? >> reporter: if you read the israeli papers in the past month or so they said an attack was virtually guaranteed before the u.s. elections in november. that rhetoric has been dialed down. whether that is intentional as a head fake or that is really going on is yet to be seen. it's very clear that the israelis need to strike sooner than the americans do because the israelis have a much, much more limited long-range bombing capability. either way you can get a feeling from the ground here by what is in the papers. this is one of the main israeli dailies i want to show you from this weekend. this is a picture of all the
simply bulldozing a few houses isn't going to make the united states and its allies change its tune. on the other hand president bashar al-assad is going to have to think at some point the world will get tired of his brutality and come in and decide whether there is a u.n. mandate or not they are going to indeed step in against president arizona. the latest u.n. enjoy who came out of syria trying to negotiate a peace says he has quote a nearly impossible job trying to do that. the syrians say they are more than happy to talk about a peace deal. they are blaming the united states, allies and some of the gulf countries, saying until the money is withdrawn from the rebels. there can be no peace. bill: leland advice earth is live in our middle east bureau in jerusalem. thank you. martha: the democratic convention kickoff soon behind us here in charlotte. they are continuing to put the finishing touches on it down there. "happening now" talks with former new mexico ambassador bill richardson, brit hume and brian swaoeut stker, and talking about president obama's hypercompetitive nature,
this fight for him straight to the floor for the united states senate. reporter: her current strategy is to moderate scott brown to conservative positions, casting him as too extreme for massachusetts voters. >> scott brown's best hope is to steer clear of this. reporter: he dropped in for a single day, refusing a single slot. on the campaign trail, you will rarely hear him utter the word republican. >> scott brown, republican -- how many times have you heard him say that? reporter: at the same time, brown is trying to paint worn as antibusiness. adding that her support for president obama's claims of you didn't build that. >> if you build a factory, good for you. you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us pay for reporter: warren is happy to amplify the most progressive rhetoric, hoping to win back democrats embraced her and 2008. reporter: massachusetts is one of the races who will control who earns the senate. the latest poll has drawn up by five points. but elizabeth warren has a substantial leading fundraiser. there have been some rocky moments in one's campaign.
